The fact that these spikes responded to bending of the tarsus, propagated solely proximally, and did not appear on our segment 12 recording site (suggesting the cell body is proximal to segment 12 but distal to segment 28) identifies them as GN6 and 7.
Injecting a tracer into the cell body of the neuron means that over several days the tracer is transported along the axon and into the growth cone.
Nerve cell body: The nerve cell body is a tiny computer that receives input from many sources and sends messages along its axon.
Among the molecules transported from the cell body to the terminals is APP, encapsulated in vesicles which are attached to kinesin (Beyreuther).
33] Axonal degeneration is retrograde, the axon shrinking back toward the neuronal cell body.
Axons are the long "arms" of a nerve cell that carry impulses away from the cell body toward a target cell.
LFPs tell us what the neuron itself hears: the steady buzz from the surrounding neighborhood, or the conglomerate input from other neurons, glial cells, and feedback from its own cell body.
A microscopy technique that Betzig developed in 2010 with Na Ji, who is now also a group leader at Janelia, achieves similar results by using an isolated fluorescent object such as a cell body or an embedded bead in the tissue as the "guide star.
He discovered that when the long-form Bdnf transcript is absent, the growth factor BDNF is only synthesized in the cell body of a neuron but not in its dendrites.
The axon is the portion of a neuron that carries nerve impulses away from the cell body.
Dendrites bring information to the body of the neuron, and axons take information away from the cell body.
Stringy--carry nerve impulses toward the cell body.
Neurons are the cells that carry out the functions of the brain, consisting of a cell body that contains genetic instructions together with the cell's biosynthetic machinery and a long projection called an axon, which reaches to the next neuron in the circuit.
Nerve cells have three distinct parts: a filigreed tree of sensation-receiving filaments called dendrites; a central cell body that processes stimuli; and a long transmitting fiber, called an axon, that joins other nerve cells at synaptic junctions.
Cellenger(R) MVA's(TM) multivariate and modular approach takes Image Analysis away from today's limitations and opens a new door in the assessment of safety and toxicity of therapeutic candidates, for example a cell body can be detected automatically without the presence of a nucleus", says Thomas Heydler, President and CEO of Definiens, AG
